Make your own cheese overnight. Spread on toast or bagel in the morning. Goes especially well with raisin toast.


  • 2 cups fat free organic plain yogurt
  • 1 large (8 cup) deep measuring cup
  • 1 strainer to fit over measuring cup
  • 1 large piece of cheesecloth folded in half and then half again (4 layers)


Place strainer over the measuring cup and line strainer with the four layers of cheesecloth. Pour yogurt into the cheesecloth.

Leave the yogurt in the cheesecloth in the refrigerator overnight for the whey to drain out. You don’t want the whey to go back into the yogurt because you are separating the solids from the liquids. In the morning, remove the cheesecloth and empty the cheese into a bowl. Discard whey. Mix 1 to 2 tablespoons of organic sugar or honey into the yogurt cheese.
